Student Support Services

Student Support Services provides limited-income, first-generation, and disabled college students with academic support services which enable students to persist and graduate from The University of West Alabama. The program provides an interconnected series of academic support services: study skill development through workshops and classes to achieve academic success, peer tutoring to master course content, intrusive academic and personal counseling to build confidence, and career and graduate exploration activities to increase awareness of the range of career options. Student Support Services also seeks to improve the climate in which the program operates for the purpose of improving the success of the SSS students.

Student Support Services provides low-income, first-generation college students with academic support services which enable students to persist and graduate from The University of West Alabama.
